PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a man has drowned in a remote area of the Cape Cod National Seashore in Provincetown.

Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe identified the victim of Sunday’s drowning as 26-year-old Kenneth Seum, of Anaheim, California. No foul play was suspected.

The Cape Cod Times reports that rescuers were called to the beach at about 1:30 p.m. after police received several 911 calls about a swimmer in distress near the historic dune shacks.

Bystanders initiated CPR until park officials and paramedics arrived at the scene. The Coast Guard also responded but the man had been pulled ashore by the time it arrived.
